The Purpose Behind Wonder Poetry
The intention of Wonder Poetry is to open an inquiry into life’s BIG questions in a way that is engaging, intriguing and fun. To evoke discussion and discovery for families, communities, classrooms, couples and friends!
A Description of Have You Ever Wondered?
FOR THE CHILD IN US ALL, Have You Ever Wondered? takes the reader on a lyrically light, yet deeply thought provoking journey of imagining. A fun filled, intriguingly magical exploration of the questions of where did I come from, what’s the purpose of my life and how do I want to be in the world? Taking those esoteric topics and grounding them in real language, accessible ideas and wonderous possibilities invites the reader to expand their imagination and ponder the very context in which they live their lives. Swirling through the words and the illustrations is the colour and depth of a cosmic purpose behind our existence.

Dr. Seuss meets Eckhart Tolle in whimsical poetry book discussing life’s big questions
Author Jane Warren writes a lighthearted poem that discusses the ageless question of “Why are we here?” while Yelena Joy creates dazzling artistry that complements the words in their new book, “Have You Ever Wondered?”
CALGARY, Alberta – In her book “Have You Ever Wondered?” (ISBN 1461012694), author Jane Warren pairs her upbeat poetry with Yelena Joy’s fanciful illustrations to launch a new series that draws readers into the world of wonder and inquiry.
“Have You Ever Wondered?” is the first book in the new Wonder Poetry series by Warren and Joy. Each book contains a single poem written with a Dr. Seuss-like rhythm and child-like innocence to engage readers in a thought provoking journey exploring life’s big questions.
Warren says that the whimsical style and lyrical tone of Dr. Seuss’ work inspired her to write the series for children and their parents.
“I’ve created the poems to be light and fun-filled while they educate and provoke, the way “Oh, The Places You’ll Go” does.” The poem in this first book explores the questions “Where did I come from?” and “What am I doing here?” while the illustrations suggest a cosmic purpose behind our existence. Although the engaging and playful writing style can appeal to children, Warren explains that her book is designed for the curious child in all of us.
“I want to inspire people to think and smile at the same time. It makes the thinking work better. I also want to inspire family conversation to help parents raise more conscious children,” she says.
Warren claims that it’s difficult for parents to find books that take on important philosophical questions in ways that are playful and exciting for kids. She and Joy offer their books as a way to bring these big questions to the forefront of more people’s lives in a way that makes the questions less intimidating and dry.
“Have You Ever Wondered?” is available for sale online at Amazon.com and other channels.
